Borland C++ 4.52

Does anybody know where I can download Borland C++ 4.52 from? Some
years ago it was available "free" on a magazine cover. So I'm hoping
that it's available from somewhere without upsetting the license/licence
owners, but I can't find it on Borland's web pages. I'd settle for an
earlier version.

Do you mind a more recent version ?

--v5.5 free download as second or third item
Many other vendors offer free C++ command-line compilers,
and even free IDE editions. Just look it up...

Do yourself and this forum a favor: do a basic search
before posting such a trivial question...

Despite the triviality of the question, you have failed to answer it.
Note that I refer (quite unambiguously) to version 4.52 or earlier, not
5.5.

I did ask:

Beats me why you'd be ok with an earlier version, but not a later one,
especially as this makes your question even less relevant to this NG.
Forgive my misunderstanding.
If your request is for a specific, antiquated version of a specific
compiler, try posting it on a forum dedicated to that compiler.

Thanks.

I think it was able to make 16 bit applications. So you can code for
Nokia Communicator e.g.
I didn't find one, that's why I sold my Nokia back then.

If targeting 16-bit x86 was the objective of the OP, it would have
been a good idea to mention it.
I think that other free C++ compilers support 16-bit x86 (DOS or
windows). Shouldn't gcc do it? Then there is Digital Mars:

It even appears to have a Borland C++ command-line emulator...
It is not the most standard-compliant, but other compilers of
that era wouldn't be much better anyway...
Cheers,
Ivan

Borland sells Turbo C++ 4.5 as a "classic" edition:

They also offer Turbo C++ 1.1 for free:

Many thanks. Fifty dollars isn't bad is it?
